Donald Trump Jr. appeared on Fox and Friends Monday, telling Fox hosts that he has no concerns about the Mueller investigation but that the Trump family is being treated unjustly by lawmakers looking to score political points.
“This is as political as it gets. Their dream in life is to try to find something to get Trump,” Trump Jr. said. “I mean, it’s that old Stalinist tactic, you know? ‘Show me the men, and I’ll show you the crime.'”
He claimed that no crime had been committed during the Trump campaign or related to any of their businesses.
“So, you know, there’s no doubt that they’ll try. But again, I know how we functioned as a company. I know how we function as individuals, and that’s why despite all this – for two years – we don’t appear all that worried, because we know there’s nothing there,” he said.
On CNN Monday, The Lead’s Jake Tapper chronicled all the crimes that have been already proven, sending multiple Trump associates and members of the campaign to jail.
“Lying to Congress … is a crime. Criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States by interfering in the U.S. election which Mueller is charging with having done.”
He went on. “Conspiracy to commit wire fraud is a crime. Bank fraud is a crime. As far as we know Mueller is not even done.”

Heather Heyer’s mom says things have gotten worse since Charlottesville — but she has a solution
CNN's Ana Cabrera on Saturday interviewed Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer. Her daughter was murdered by a white nationalist terrorist during the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.
"When you watch what’s happening in Portland, thankfully everything right now is peaceful, but does it sort of give you that knee-jerk reaction where your hackles kind of go up, just given everything your family has been through?" Cabrera asked.
"My hackles don’t really go down anymore," Bro replied. "I am constantly tracking these things around the country as they happen. Yeah, I think after two years ago, mine will never completely go down again."
